BO JAMES HOWELL

Partner

After spending a few years at the SEC’s Division of Investment Management, Bo took his passion for product and business development in-house where he worked for a $20 billion fund complex before gaining experience in fund administration. Bo’s practice focuses primarily on registered investment companies, other investment products, and registered investment advisers. He has substantial experience with reorganizations and launching innovative fund products. Bo has also served as a CCO for registered investment companies and investment advisers. Bo has published many articles on legal issues affecting the investment management industry. Before joining Practus, Bo was the Director of Fund Administration at Ultimus Fund Solutions and Counsel – Securities and Mutual Funds at Western & Southern Financial Group.

Bo’s spare time is centered around his family and the great outdoors. He enjoys leading Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops on many adventures involving hiking, camping and canoeing. Though he’s too humble to admit it, Bo has earned the top merit badges in his troop for Investment Fund Management Administration and How To Start A Campfire With Two Sticks. (They're pretty big badges).
